Why is it that we don't hear as much about adult stem -- Well I think we're starting to and that's what's exciting and medicine is over 4300.
Clinical trials on adult stem cells and a lot of progress being made.
To use these cells and to create therapies for things like heart disease.
And that's lupus.
You know vision when you lose your vision for Mac that generation and there's that's the future of medicine in many ways it was starting to CD -- I think it's data driven.
And people just don't really understand that adult stem cells have are powerful and there's a lot of upside and potential and actually progress much more so than we've seen in -- -- -- Augusta is so there's more progress and more possibilities -- adult stem cells then embryonic stem cells or is that -- is that I'm understanding you know I think you know a lot of -- debate started with Michael J.
-- -- parkinson's and you know you're treating symptoms -- Christopher -- wants to Korea's rain -- but look at the progress we've made over the last fifteen years today there's 4300 clinical trials using adult stem -- and only 26 with embryonic stem -- Hawaii is that -- the data.
The data continues to progress in adult stem cells and we're all looking for the same thing which is curious.
It's the way to treat underlying illness is supposed to treat symptoms not monsignor how the Vatican get involved in this -- and -- What we explored.
They're all grange so wolf smaller chin and we discovered that there -- -- of that.
Natural sciences from bridges of Madison that we have to.
-- look at carefully.
And she what is going on there so that's what why do we.
It gets you to return to match.
And how did getting involved with -- -- Because it's been a -- -- couple years now how to that you're involved with this company -- looking for partners that could it help us trying to stand.
-- a significant changes within natural science of -- in Madison.
So we had some requirements and we.
We found -- -- and we saw that.
Being matched to our requirements and that's how we just -- work they're not Robin.
The idea of the adult stem cells.
Is something that they obviously -- pro -- you really want you want to push for because this is the miracle cure that they thought the fund embryonic stem cells.
What is neo stem about what is kind of company -- this.
-- -- -- -- create your own cell therapies for.
Different diseases so we have a pipeline of cell therapies are most mature these four.
Cardiac after a heart attack when -- people who have these heart attacks die within.
A year how do you prevent that so we're trying to create -- therapies in your own stem cells from your bone marrow.
Injected into the heart five to eleven days after a heart attack to -- down the blood vessels and prevent worsening of that heart muscle to have a deterioration.
There's been just what I've read a couple of things and here's a miracle kinds of breakthroughs from adult stem cells -- -- -- -- The woman who had to draw up a new -- actually ground for her.
How stuff that's amazing right you can take a Blatter south put it on -- matrix and grow -- we've seen a little child with with taking.
Same thing for people to take a matrix -- stem cells on it and create -- And the hopeful he will be able to do this in the future for limbs and for different parts of -- organs -- her body which deteriorates from the trauma or from disease.
-- -- we have a new Pope now this -- Francis.
But it was Pope Benedict.
America's Pope Benedict that really got involved in fact he is he wrote -- the forward.
To your book the that the -- south.
How -- -- how did get involved with -- and and what to the extent we do you owe this to him.
Yes -- -- Sweeney we're looking for a long time to organize the first the international conference -- as -- -- We asked Pope Benedict to receivers and special attention and when she -- -- he delivers special mass message to the participants.
That's why we have these wars all suing his blue.
And we expect -- something you all pool presaged you can.
Maybe even more involved seems he has assigned to better.
But I it the beginning we talking about how science religion are awfully are often at odds and that's I think -- perceived.
Concept from a lot of people.
In in the world thinking that science religion just don't -- But tell me about how the Vatican kind of it has been involved in the issue of science.
As sort of an obligation of religion in sense.
-- If you full might just tell you -- of tradition of the church you could see that church is not against science.
And we really believe there's no position between.
Religion and science so what part of all initiative is also to.
-- -- prejudices about -- him to.
To let people know that they don't need to make a choice between -- -- or science they can be -- religious people.
And I'm -- science scientific research articles scientific respect.
And others have just anything that's going to come out of this conference is -- April.
The international conference an adult stem -- Any new news we're gonna we're gonna find out -- coming out of this.
Well we're hoping to bridge -- gap -- to take the gap that people have misunderstandings about embryonic -- adult stem -- and create a bridge in collaboration.
And have people from around the world understand the importance the significance and this paradigm shift in medicine and we'll hear from researchers around the world.
Patients who have been part of those clinical trials talk about open dialogue between religion and and it's science and culture and see what impact this will have as we continue their opinions how some way to ending -- since the kind of things sent.
First marine well was after and also parkinson's.
Fox was one we've seen some very exciting any data to early data but.
-- to -- cures for parkinson's that's the cool.
Things like or less terrible Lou Gehrig's disease and hopefully getting someone out of the wheelchair so I wouldn't be surprised over the next five to ten years but -- he dramatic change.
And how we treat those diseases -- an even diseases like alzheimer's.
How fantastic and I thank you both a monsignor autonomous -- from the pontifical council for culture and -- twenty.
And -- that Robyn Smith she's CEO of neo stem.
And author of the book the healing itself fascinating -- -- of the book stories April 2 in Barnes & Noble and he could pre -- -- stipulate to -- actually thank you very much and you know what.
